Binding of nuclear factors to a satellite DNA of retroviral origin with marked differences in copy number among species of the rodent Ctenomys.

Abstract

The major satellite DNA of the subterranean rodent Ctenomys, named RPCS, contains several consensus sequences characteristic of the U3 region of retroviral long terminal repeats (LTRs), such as a polypurine tract, CCAAT boxes, binding sites for the CCAAT/enhancer-binding protein (C/EBP), a TATA box and putative polyadenylation signals. RPCS presents an… (More)
